't even breathe a word ofened and scott pelley, bless him, didn't really raise that issue with him. but romney care addresses that issue of the person who gets the heart attack who has to go to the er. but i don't think he has any strategic intent here. maybe bob can discern it. just the other day at the univision forum, he said he was the god father of obama care and that would be fine with him. so he's really flailing back and forth on this issue. whatever sort of seems to pop into his head at the moment is what he says. he's just so hand tied or handcuffed on the issue of health care that he just can't give a good answer no matter what angle he comes at it from. >> jim lehrer is going to be able to put him in circles without having the other guy involved. how tough are they going to be? >> lehrer tends to push hard on the specifics. he seems to be saying the first thing that pops in his head. my theory is he can do better than people expects, he has low expectations. if they get him in a room, and apparently he's been practicing a lot. he uses only the memorized answers and neve
